NHL Playoffs Open Thread for Monday, April 23rd

Only two games on the schedule tonight as we get into every-game-is-an-elimination-game time.

NY Rangers (1) vs. Ottawa Senators (8) - 7:00 NBCSN: Ottawa snuck out of Game 5 in New York with a shutout victory over the Rangers at MSG off a pair of goals from Jason Spezza. If that's not enough fun, but Daniel Alfredsson and Carl Hagelin should be back for their squads after a game 1 incident knocked the former out with an injury and the latter out with a suspension. After dropping 4 on the Sens in Game 1, the Rangers haven't been able to put more than 2 in the net since. The Scotiabank Place will be rocking tonight.

Phoenix Coyotes (3) vs. Chicago Blackhawks (6) 9:00 CNBC: Meanwhile, in the other conference, Phoenix remains in the driver's seat of their first round series, but go to their opponent's barn after losing an opportunity to close out this series in front of their home crowd. They've got juuuuuust a little while longer until Raffi Torres comes back into their lineup, but every game of this series has gone into OT so far. I'll go ahead and be bold enough to predict this game is decided by one goal. Both teams know that the winner of this series will face the Predators in the 2nd round
